Since the advancement of technology, it has influenced every core of human life. During the last decade, we have seen a rise in technology consumption. It has taken over the world like a tsunami in the last few centuries. All the technology innovation begins with basic human necessities and a motive to remove hurdles in their lifestyle. To end differences in location and generations, reduce communication difficulties and minimize the workload, we are now technology bound.

A wise man once said,

“Technology is a useful servant, but a dangerous master.”
Christian Louis Lange

Technology has been serving humans from the beginning to make their life easier and hassle-free. Somehow, we are trapped in our technology shell to make things smooth. Our lives now cannot imagine a day without it. Can you imagine a day without your cellphone? It is the first thing we check in the morning after the alarm goes off and probably the last thing we keep aside at night. In this rat race of innovation, we have lost real connection with the world outside devices.

Negative Impacts

As every invention comes with its flaws, technology comes with its drastic impacts on human life. To make human life easier, technology has slowly taken over our lives. We no more connect with nature and our surroundings. We are so technology bound that we cannot imagine our lives without modern-day technology.

There is a huge communication gap between humans due to strong digital connectivity and less actual connection. People love to sit at home watch TV, play games, use laptops, cellphones and other modern technologies. There are fewer outdoor activities among younger adults due to more on-screen time.

Human health has deteriorated to improve life expectancy. Excessive use of laptops and cellphones put a strain on our eyes. Overall, technology is causing many damaging effects on our minds and bodies. Today, most of our food items are now processed and lack natural ingredients leading to many health issues.

Now people love to do technology talk more than real-life talk. They are more social digital than in the real world. Artificial Intelligence such as Amazon and Google assistance has taken over lives. With these social platforms, security issues can be seen around us. Cybercrimes, fake accounts, and terrorism are increasing every day.

To consume less time, technology has improved many aspects of our lives. However, the time has lost its value and so are humans.
